Langlands & Bell Architecture

London Artists, England – Urban Culture Art

20 Feb 2007

Langlands & Bell Art

The Inaugural EAA Annual Lecture presents the award-winning artists Ben Langlands and Nikki Bell who through immaculate models, innovative new media projects, and architecture itself, explore the complex web of relationships linking people, architecture and the coded systems of circulation and exchange which surround us.

Based in London, Langlands & Bell have been collaborating since 1978, and exhibiting internationally since the early 1980’s. Known for examining our experience of architecture, and our primarily urban culture at many different levels, these British artists explore the places and structures we inhabit, and the routes that penetrate and link them. Their work often looks at real buildings and the ways we think about them, revealing their histories and associated human activity while reflecting on the many ways we communicate and relate to each other.

Ben and Nikki won the BAFTA award for Interactive Arts Installation for “The House for Osama bin Laden” in 2004 and were shortlisted for the 2004 Turner Prize.

These British artists explore the complex web of relationships linking people and architecture and the coded systems of mass-communications and exchange we use to negotiate an increasingly fast changing technological world.
